After reading a story about a monster, each student draws their own monster. They share it with others in front of the class. They tell us about the monster, and the class asks questions, such as

  • “Where does the monster live?”
  • “What's its name?”
  • “Does it have a family?”

I give each student a certain amount of time, and each day we do a monster introduction until all students have an opportunity to present. Time is given each day to write a story about their monsters. With all the questions generated, they have a great deal of information and detail to add to their stories.
